Rotherham Hospital’s A&E team helps to reduce violent crime rates

24 May 2011 16:51:40

Dedicated staff from Rotherham Hospital’s Accident & Emergency (A&E) Reception Team have been recognised for their outstanding work to help reduce violence across the town. 


Since January 2009 the team has been collecting additional information from people who come to A&E as a result of being assaulted. The information gathered, which is non-patient identifiable, includes when and where the assault took place, as well as who was involved and is then used by the Police to gather intelligence to assist them in targeting violent crime.  


This has helped contribute to a reduction in violent incidents by over 50% on the same period from the previous year. Collecting information such as this has been a key priority for Community Safety Partnerships and the Tackling Knives Action Programme (TKAP), as so many incidents that take place are not reported to the police. 


Chief Inspector Nev Hamilton of South Yorkshire Police presented the Commendation Certificate to Rotherham Hospital’s A&E team. He said: “I am pleased that the police and its partners have recognised the dedication of the reception team in collecting this important information and the contribution they have made to help make Rotherham a safer place.”
